Hey, everyone! I’m writing up a blog entry about another pair of pats but since I’ve already done an entry talking about the Venture Motorcycle Jacket I thought I should probably make one about the pants to go with it, The Venture Motorcycle Trousers.
Like the jacket, the Black Venture Motorcycle Trousers were designed with the commuter in mind. The style is simple, the materials are tough and there’s been a fair bit of thought put into the gear to make both the jacket and pants easy to wear for a day-to-day commuter.
The shell of the trousers are made from a 600D Polyester, a material that is quite common in making motorcycle gear as it is tough and abrasion resistant yet still light and flexible. So already you know your pants are going to be lightweight and comfy to wear, yet make a protective second skin during your commute.
Technically- these trousers are actually overtrousers, designed to go over the pants you’re already wearing and as a result of this, the venture trousers don’t have a thermal liner. This is to make the trousers easier to get on and off, saving a commuter valuable time both getting ready for work and getting ready to head home. Since they are already going over your regular trousers, Black have taken this into consideration and sized the Venture Trousers accordingly so that you can find your regular trouser size and your pair of Ventures should fit perfectly over them.
Despite not having a thermal liner and being designed to go over your normal trousers the Black Ventures do have one kind of lining. Inside the trousers is a fixed waterproof liner so that you can stand up to the wet weather on the way to work and on the way home. Black must understand that having to spend the day in wet clothes is soul crushing so if you pair these trousers with their Venture Jacket as well as their Oxygen Elite Boots and a decent pair of gloves- you’ll be able to get to work through a wet ride and go about your day comfortably.
Once over your trousers, you can use the waist adjusters to tighten the fit perfectly to keep your trousers from slipping down. There are also zips and velcro adjusters on the legs so that you can customise the fit on the cuffs of the pants as well.
For added comfort while riding the Ventures have been designed with stretch paneling at the knees and lower back so that the pants don’t shift while adjusting riding positions and the legs of the trousers don’t bunch up and rise on the leg. Just above the stretch panel on the lower back you may also notice a pair of zips- a small one and a long one. These zips are used to connect your Venture pants to your jacket so that your jacket doesn’t ride up in a forward lean and give the cold air a straight shot up your back. The longer zip makes the jacket into a joined, two-piece suit, providing better protection in a slide where skin between the trouser waist and bottom of the jacket can be exposed if you’re unlucky.
To keep you protected in an impact, even though they’re technically overtrousers, the Venture pants have CE approved knee armour installed already. So you’re getting the same protection as regular motorcycle trousers out of these over trousers.
For £52.99 you’re getting a great, versatile pair of pants that will serve a commuter well and with the Venture Jacket and other Black products, you have a truly great motorbiking outfit in your arsenal.
Thanks for reading, everybody! Until next time!
